Response from Onside Advocacy

After asking KH for full details of Onside Advocacy’s advocate’s decision, involvement and presence at a meeting to deny my brother of private & family life and of attending our mother’s with me, I received the below letter from Onside Advocacy, on 18th September 2020.

The reply letter is a standard response from this organisation and one I have experienced before. You will note a complete and blatant disregard to address the points of my letter to KH, which can be seen in this post:
Letter to Kate Harvey of Onside Advocacy

To date, no less than three onside advocates provided to my vulnerable autistic brother have been party to the neglect and institutional abuse.

The first advocate BS ignored addressing many concerns and made false claims regarding my brother’s weight. The advocate claimed weight loss, when, in fact, my brother had increased in weight substantially, putting on over 5 stones, which I noted affected mobility and health.
When I raised a complaint about this advocate, I was visited by the chair of trustees RA, who offered a feigned apology.
I later discovered the trustee had been a senior police officer who had resigned due to an IPCC investigation; guilty of sexually harassing a female colleague and breaching the force’s code of conduct on four separate occasions.

The second advocate LE, who I met along with my solicitor, at a best interest meeting in 2017, was a person I place trust in to represent my brother without bias or prejudice. Sadly, I later discovered, in 2019, my trust was misplaced after the advocate lied to a BBC reporter who contacted them about their participation and what they said during the meeting.

As for the third advocate TC, they assisted in concealing concerns and incidents that occurred with my brother. TC a party who was, in my opinion, clearly content with destroying our family and private life, and all that I had helped my brother develop over the years.

Letter to Trevor Torrington (CEO) Priory Group

Distressingly having witnessed over extended time my vulnerable brother become a commodity of The Priory Group due to lies and concealment by particular ‘care’ staff, and his rights blatantly disregarded. I have written the below letter to Trevor Torrington (CEO of Priory Group).

While I may or may not receive a response from Mr Torrington, I will never pardon individuals in their organisation for what they have done.

Letter to Stephen Vickers (update)

Today (27th August) is the 22nd day since sending another letter to Mr Stephen Vickers (Director of Adults & Wellbeing at Herefordshire Council) and to local councillors for them to forward to him.
I have not received any communication from SV since regarding arrangements for the return of the computer & equipment nor the declared detailed police, nor has either been sent to the solicitor I requested. Such I firmly believe is deliberate and extended prevention of my wish of seeking legal redress for the accusations made and destruction of my family. Fortunately, I securely stored forensic images of the computer drive before it was confiscated while being returned to my brother.

Below is a redacted copy of the letter I sent to SV

It is no surprise to me why the care system is so broken, and the vulnerable and their families suffer—having experienced and identified the individuals within the care system from directors to LA lawyers, to social workers and care staff who are willing, complicit or supportive of concealing neglect, ill-treatment or wrongdoing. Some appear to have no moral or ethical issues with lying to the courts.

Letter to Stephen Vickers

Below is an image of another batch of letters I have deliver to local Herefordshire County councillors, today 10th August 2020, asking again for them to forward an enclosed letter to Stephen Vickers (Director of Adults & Wellbeing at Herefordshire Council).

In the letter, I have asked that SV cease avoiding accountability and responsibility for his and his colleague actions, inactions and libellous accusations, and to handle the return of property and the claimed detailed police report, personally and promptly. Notably, as I still wait for the declared detailed police report to be sent to my solicitor after requesting for such repeatedly from Herefordshire Council.

I did, however, receive a letter from AM, (part redacted copy below) one of three individuals I complained about and who were involved in concealing concerns and incidents I reported regarding my brother, and fabricating criminal offences against me.
Further, the detailed police report was not attached to the letter, as AM claimed.

I believe it is highly inappropriate and unprofessional for, SV, a director of adult social care who claims to specialise in law, have a colleague AM contact me the victim of their vexatious accusations and executed attempt to have me imprisoned, and which assisted in destroying my family.

However, as SV chose to wilfully ignored the concerns and incidents I reported regarding my brother and blocked communication, to avoid further knowledge, I perhaps should not have been surprised by SV’s disregard and action.

I suspect further foul play by SV, AM and colleagues, as the computer can be delivered to me but not to my solicitor without a claimed ‘possibility of damage’, and as mentioned the detailed police was missing and has not been sent to my solicitor.

Letter from Rebekah Cresswell Priory Group

A couple of days ago I received the below letter from The Priory Group.

Regarding the claim of having written to me on 12th June, I’ve received no such letter. In fact, for no less than the last 12 months, although an interested party in the health & welfare of my brother, I have been excluded from involvement and contact.
And he has been denied of visits home, even to visit our dying mother, when requested, before the pandemic started.

There is a significant amount of concern I could highlight in the letter, not least they have had seven months to prepare and adjust, four since lockdown began on 26th March 2020 and, as I can evidence, have ignored previous government guidance and legislation.

Additionally, below is an extract from an email of 19th June 2020 informing me of coronavirus testing kits order and arriving at the Priory Group home. You’ll note it also states ‘There have been no cases suspected or confirmed cases of coronavirus among residents or staff here at H House to date’. How do they know if they haven’t had kits to test with?

 

Letters to Councillors re SV July

Below are a few of the envelopes containing letters I will deliver on Monday 27th July 2020 to my local councillors. Inside, a copy of my original disregard letter to Stephen Vickers (Director of Adults & Wellbeing at Herefordshire Council). A copy of that letter, which was delivered on 30th June 2020 can be seen here.

 

 

 

 

 

Dudley Council Visiting Our Website

Below is another log report, although not an unlawful attempt to gain access to our website,  it shows a human visitor from Dudley Council using a Google search term to visit our website.

Why was a person at Dudley Council interested in our social care story, outside of their authority involvement, and why did they search for and visit a specific page?

Coincidentally, Martin Samuels, the former Director for Adults and Wellbeing at Herefordshire Council, hadn’t long moved to Dudley Council when this report came to me.

The same Martin Samuels who ignored the reported and repeated incidents of neglect & ill-treatment of my brother. And the same Martin Samuels who instigated the block on communication with Herefordshire Council in November 2017.


The link that was visited I preserved on the oldsite link, here: Page visited by Dudley Council visitor

As an aside, Would nominated individuals such as directors in social care settings, have their own interests above that of vulnerable people and their families who report concerns or incidents of neglect or ill-treatment, or would they use wilful ignorance to avoid accountability or embarrassment?
From experience, I would firmly say, regarding some directors I have had to deal with to date, most definitely.

Unlawful Attempt to Access Our Website

This image below is a photocopy of a security log from 2018 when an unlawful attempt was made to access a specific webpage on our website.
I traced the attack back to a Priory Group network & location.
The specific names used, David & Mike, coincidentally names of a Director of Risk and Safety at The Priory Group & a carer of a particular ‘care’ home of The Priory Group involved in my long-running reported concerns & incidents of recurring neglect & ill-treatment of my brother.

 

Nine Years

Nine years ago, I dropped my adopted brother off at a local respite centre who were intermittently supporting with some occasional respite care while I supported our mother in the hospital, day & night for 15 weeks, as my blood siblings wouldn’t help with support.
Our mother returned home, and I became her unpaid carer; my brother disappeared into the care system.

Seven years have now passed since I have repeatedly attempted to have my brother, who I supported for 36 years, returned home or closer to the family, as our now-deceased mother wanted, and after I first raised concerns regarding neglect and ill-treatment at the unsuitable Priory Group ‘care’ home.

Four years have passed since Herefordshire Council threatened me and accused me of breaching my mother’s & brother’s Human Rights, for not agreeing with The Priory Group demands on how we maintained our private & family life. the Herefordshire Council solicitor I spoke to ignoring reported concerns.

Two years have now also passed since Herefordshire Council social care staff attempted and failed to fabricated criminal offence against me for exposing recurring neglect & ill-treatment of my brother, with their help in concealing it, and since they lied about my brother’s care & support to the Court of Protection.

Our mother, now deceased, and my brother unaware of her death because he has not been allowed to come home or attend the funeral.
The Priory Group and Herefordshire Council wrongly claiming not allowing my brother to attend our mother’s funeral were due to government guidance.
When in fact, since the government guidance was published some months ago, it stated the contrary and as the government recently reiterated.

Feeble excuses for denying us of contact distressingly continue, such as ‘bad weather’ and ‘concerns about how I support my brother’; regardless of a court order.

While I have been denied a fair trial regarding Herefordshire Council’s accusations, this is the reality of dealing with adult social care in Herefordshire.
